Topics covered at #droidcon2gether

Saturday, 27th October in London


Following two days of awesome fun at droidcon 2018, jump in right away with the latest technology on hand, join fellow droidcon attendees and some of the most talented coders and experts, for droidcon2gether and create something amazing!

Join HERE's challenge!

Add the power of maps and location to your apps with the robust set of developer tools in HERE Location Suite. No rules, no restrictions, get creative and use location to solve complex problems. With access to over 20 different APIs, developer.here.com has everything you need for location-based integration. Participants should prepare a short 10 min presentation of what their project offers and how they used location to get there. Projects will be judged on creativity and best use of the APIs by the HERE developer evangelist team at community day.

The project with the best use of HERE APIs will win an Alexa Echo for each team member (up to 5).


droidcon2gether Weekend will be hosted at CodeNode, Skills Matter's community venue, which features plenty of spaces to collaborate and work on projects. CodeNode features fast and reliable WIFI, all spaces come with plenty of sockets, whiteboards.
